1623 Farnam is also host to the most geographically centered Internet Exchange in the US – Omaha IX. A presence at 1623 Farnam allows our customers to exchange traffic and routes directly with others in the exchange. Founded in 2014, the Omaha IX at 1623 Farnam boasts a dense ecosystem, enabling you to:
- Lower the cost of transporting traffic across “third-party” connections (less bandwidth needed)
- Create a central peering point to share your traffic routes and avoid delays of sending traffic to routes outside of the desired location
- Transport traffic for one low cost and stable connection avoiding the tiered approach of upstream ISP providers
- Perform more efficiently through streamlined traffic and fewer AS hops between destinations
Ultimately, connecting your network to peers such as large content companies, internet service providers, communications companies, and government and educational facilities lowers costs, improves network latency and, with less hops, can improve security.
